ICE HOUSES

First you will need to freeze water in various shapes for your outdoor winter construction. You can use old cake pans, jelly molds, plastic containers, tin cans and milk cartons. Just fill the containers with water and leave outdoors for several cold, freezing days (in the shade) so you will have lots of ice bricks. Stick the blocks together with water and snow as the mortar, and build a wall. You may need to build your structure over several days, refilling the containers and making more blocks as you go along. Happy building!
